    Good price; only 1 currently in stock.

    Keep in mind that even the Intel i7-26xxQM series only support RAM up to 1,333MHz so you’ll need the i7-27xx or 28xx series to be able to use the higher speed otherwise it will default to 1,333MHz.

    Was thinking that because there are a further 12 sellers underneath & Amazon being the top one, that there'd be more, but I'm now guessing that the one left will be from the top seller in the list. I could be wrong.
    They also have them in 2x4gb format for £37.63. I went down this route for my XPS.

    not entirely accurate. you just have to use the bios. xmp.

    if you have a decent mobo (as you should), you dont need to worry about that guys post.

    These are SO-DIMMs and not many laptops have a BIOS that supports running RAM out of spec. Even if they did if the chipset/CPU doesn’t support RAM ratios other than stock you are stuffed regardless of XMP settings.
    Even desktop Intel chipsets/CPUs can have this limitation; e.g. the current H67 chipset is limited to 1,333MHz RAM with no option to change the divider upwards.

    this is true, i really was just pointing out that there are ways around the lack of support for 1600, and that it isnt as hopeless as i perceived from your original comment.

    i myself have 8gb of this ram with a 2500k and a z68. albeit, this is all of course in a desktop, but its the same principle.

    Yes but as he pointed out most laptops do not support changing the ram ratios. Most retail desktop motherboards do support manual setting of the ram ratio. So for 99% of people looking at the so-dimm above it will have no benefit over a cheaper 1333Mhz module.

    Future proofing maybe?

    then for the 1%, my comment is useful. that was my only contention.

    it isnt as low as 1%.

    I perceived that you overlooked the issue that the BIOS alone isn’t the issue as Intel has locked down certain chipsets and/or CPUs with regard to the memory settings. So even with desktops it’s hopeless in some cases; I have an i5-2500K with a H67 board and DDR3-1600 and the RAM is stuck at 1,333MHz. Anyone know whether the mobile chipsets are also locked in this way?

    That’s a very rare configuration though, a Z68 desktop with SO-DIMMs. I presume you have a Mini ITX board!

    Could I use this for my desktop or is it laptop only? It looks different to the stuff I've been looking at so I'm guessing the latter!

    SO-DIMM memory is only for laptops and macs so it won't work with your desktop unless it's a mac

    For Sandy Bridge the difference between 1333MHz and 1600MHz RAM is pretty minor, but there is a difference. Seeing as this costs essentially the same as 1333MHz SO-DIMMs you may as well get this.

    i wish 8GB chips would fall in price, imagine a 4 x 8GB alienware lappy!? mmmmm!

    hmm silly question but my ram is currently 204 pin and this is 200 pin, its not guna fit is it??

    i bought one of these at 7dayshop for 15pounds. now my dell r17 i5 is running with 8gb ram

    Cas latency might be lower running at 1333mhz instead of the 1600mhz if bios can utilise non serial presence detect settings


    [edit 13:05]seems it auto overclocks for 1333 to 1600 so chances are CL is same at both speeds. Well @1066 you might see some lower timings if what you put it in only supports 1066

    Would these work in a 2011 iMac? Just with the whole clock speed shabang. I know my Mac can use upto 1333mhz. But are these backwards compatible?
    BigBuds
    I bought some of these for my xps L702x. my processor is a i7 2720 but the mother board in these laptops will not allow you to change the bios settings to run at 1600htz.
    EleZiuM
    I posted this ages ago. Nice to see it making a come back. :)
    Still, I tried these in my L702x & one slot just wasn't liking them (the other 3 were fine with them), but Dell wouldn't do anything about it, as the XPS 17 is only designed to take 1333MHz. :(

    What about Inspiron 15R??? I am after 4 gb
